Good morning: Ready for the big day? If someone asked that question, how would you respond? Would you answer, “Sure, I can hardly wait for Thanksgiving!” Someone else might say, “I’m counting down the days till Christmas,” or “I’ll graduate in six months.” There are all kinds of “big days” for which we plan and…

Good morning: “…And they all lived happily ever after.” Who doesn’t like a happy ending to a fairly tale, a novel, or the latest movie release? Yet most people will also quickly add a disclaimer: “That would never happen. It’s just a story. Things never work out like that in real life.” The evidence would…

Good morning: Does God care that I woke up with a headache? Does the stress of your job show up on His radar? What about the sadness for which you can’t even find a reason? Do the passing, “little” things of life matter to Him, or is He only concerned with the more important spiritual…

Good morning: The Reformation should have failed. By any reasonable measure, there was no way that it could accomplish what it did. How could a “shabby little monk,” as Luther was called, possibly have any impact on the Roman Catholic Church, the most powerful institution in the world? Who would listen to him? Who would…

Good morning: Of all the words in all the songs ever written, perhaps none is used more often than the word “love.” Everyone recognizes that love is important to our relationships in life. But it also seems to be such a temporary, fragile thing. Countless upbeat lyrics and exuberant melodies express the joy of newfound…

Good morning: There are certain times when you can’t wait to share news. It’s nearly impossible to hold it in until you get home. Waiting a few seconds for someone to answer their phone can seem like hours. You can’t send an email or text fast enough. You feel like you might explode if you…

Good morning: The first time I saw the ocean was on a family vacation to San Diego. As soon as the water came into view, I pulled the minivan into a parking spot and we all jumped out and headed for the beach. It was an awesome sight! The vast size of the ocean, the…

Good Morning, The most recent Powerball winner took home over 480 million in cash. When I saw the announcement I thought to myself, “She doesn’t deserve that! She’s just taking other peoples’ money. Plus, it’s a sin to gamble.” However, my condemnation of the lady wasn’t solely based on righteous anger that she stole from…

Good morning, This Tuesday all of the local high schools will be back in session. Sports teams will soon be playing under the lights, teachers will be correcting the mounds of homework they assign, and the cool kids will soon be separating themselves from those they deem not cool. Whether it’s for class, study hall,…

Good morning, What’s your exercise routine: a daily walk around the neighborhood, a five-mile bike ride, lifting weights at the gym? We know that regular exercise is important for our muscles. If we don’t use them, they will inevitably become weaker. To stay strong or grow in strength they need to push or pull against…
